- Libel or slander
- Website or email infringement
- Covers you whether you work at home, at a client’s home, or at a clinic or salon

- Available levels of indemnity - £1million (for Students), £2million (no longer available, for existing Associate members only), £3million or £6million (for Members) per annum.
